Episodes of Fringe were longer than standard dramas on current network television. The show ran with half the commercials during the first season, adding about six minutes to the show's runtime.When the show went to a commercial, a short bumper aired informing the viewer of roughly how much time commercials will consume before the program resumed.

Fringe is in many ways an experiment for us, which is, we believe it is possible to do a show that does have an overall story and end game, which Fringe absolutely does… We can do a show that has that, so that there's a direction the show is going and there's an ultimate story that's being told, but also a show that you don't have to watch episodes one, two and three to tune into episode four."[11] Roberto Orci, a co-creator, commented that Fringe "took its inspiration from The X-Files", but will “differentiate through the characters," and be a whole new take on the genre.

A shapeshifter from the alternate universe kills Olivia's partner, Charlie, and under his form, finds the location of one of their agents, Thomas Jerome Newton. Newton, using information stored in portions of Walter's brain which Bell had purposely removed at Walter's request, devises a means to connect the two universes in order to allow Walternate across. As the Fringe division attempts to stop Newton, Olivia is forced to recall her Cortexiphan-induced ability to see objects that originated in the other universe, and comes to discover the truth about Peter. Walter urges her not to tell him as he wishes to tell him himself but is struggling in how to approach it. As a result of Newton's actions, Peter learns himself about his past and runs away to think to himself. Peter encounters Walternate who had recently crossed over prior to Peter's aid in a police case eluded with suspicions of paranoia due to explanations concerning a recurring fringe event of his bizarre experiences with the Fringe Division. Walternate offers to bring him back home, and Peter accepts.

The first actors cast were Kirk Acevedo and Mark Valley, who portrayed FBI agents Charlie Francis and John Scott, respectively.John Noble and Lance Reddick, who play Dr. Walter Bishop and Homeland Security agent Phillip Broyles joined the cast later on.Casting of Anna Torv, Blair Brown, and Jasika Nicole, who play Olivia Dunham, Massive Dynamic employee Nina Sharp,and Astrid Farnsworth, a federal agent and assistant to Olivia Dunham, respectively, followed,while Joshua Jackson, who plays Peter Bishop, was the last main character to be cast.Jackson auditioned for James T. Kirk in Abrams' Star Trek and believed this is what impressed the producer to cast him in his television project.

Errors in geography: Beginning in season one, establishing shots show the teams headquarters to be in a skyscraper which title cards identify as the "Boston Federal Building." However the building shown is actually Hancock Tower, a privately owned office building which is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Boston. The FBI is located in One Center Plaza which is across the street from Homeland Security office located in the John F. Kennedy Federal Building located downtown at Government Center. Both buildings are in direct proximity to Boston City Hall, a city courthouse, police station, local NBC/CW television station and immigration offices,was wondering who everyones favourite character in Fringe is? I make no secret of the fact that I love Olivia Dunham (just check out my profile banner:P) for me Olivia Dunham = awesomeness.She is really smart (she figured out The Observer was watching them in a matter of weeks when Broyles.

The majority of mysteries in Fringe deal with a parallel universe. Abrams revealed in an interview that the glyphs in the show had a hidden meaning."It's something that we're doing for people who care to figure it out and follow it,but it's not something that a viewer has to consider when they watch the show.Abrams also revealed that the seemingly unrelated frogs which have the Greek letter Phi imprinted on their back appeared in promos for the show have significance within the context of the series, saying "it's part of the code of the show.The glyph code was cracked by an editor at the technology site Ars Technica,who discovered it to be a simple substitution cypher used to spell out a single thematic word for each episode.Whether there is a further second-order code to be solved remains to be seen.
